|Report Highlights National Forum on Youth Violence Prevention
June 27, 2016
The Research and Evaluation Center at John Jay College, supported by OJJDP, has released “Durable Collaborations: The National Forum on Youth Violence Prevention.” This report is based on a survey of community leaders in the 15 cities participating in the National Forum on Youth Violence Prevention on their perceptions and attitudes about youth violence prevention. The report highlights their belief that the Forum develops greater opportunities for youth, more effective violence prevention approaches, improved perceptions of law enforcement, and a broader engagement of community members.
On June 27-29, 2016, the National Forum on Youth Violence Prevention and My Brother's Keeper Task Force are sponsoring the Fifth National Summit on Preventing Youth Violence in Baltimore, MD. OJJDP will livestream from the 3-day summit.
